Tips on growing your own organic produce will be presented at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday at the for those who want to eat and serve organic without constantly relying on other sources for foods free of pesticides and synthetic herbicides.
Wanda Knapik, director of the Bernardsville Community Garden and owner of My Local Garden, will discuss how to grow organic vegetables, herbs, fruits, nuts, and berries in your own backyard or in a plot in a community garden.
"If trees blew down with the hurricane, you can now plant fruit trees or a vegetable garden in that sunny spot in your yard," Knapik suggested. "At the end of May, you can be planting tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and herbs. Using organic practices will produce healthier, more nutrient dense food that tastes better than anything in the store."
In this program, listeners will learn tips and tricks of planting and harvesting, connecting with nature, and enjoying the beauty and abundance created in their own backyards, according to the library. At the end of the program, Knapik will answer any gardening questions from the public.
There is no charge to attend the program, but advance sign-up is requested.
